The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) is distributing its first consumer leaflet promoting timber windows.

A total of 8,500 copies of the glossy eight-page brochure, “Timber windows: the Natural Choice for Your Home”, are being sent out to BWF members who will pass them on to builder customers for display in showhomes where BWF-accredited windows are fitted.

About 500 copies are being sent to housebuilders on the BWF’s database.

The brochures, accompanied by an A2 size poster, stress the longevity and quality of modern timber windows, and their 30-year guarantees against decay and fungal attack.
